The first weekend in February, we scheduled an event for everyone to learn about and view eagles in the wild. It was a success with 800+ school children and 600+ public visitors attending the presentation with a Golden Eagle and a Bald Eagle, traveling to viewing scopes to see eagles in the wild and viewing their nests. During that weekend we had about 50 eagles around the area, which is quite a good number when you remember that eagles have been on the endangered species list for some time.
